Cattau et al have shown that clinical examination detects peritoneal fluid in only a half of patients with less than a litre of ascites Table 3. Prognosis is related largely pagacentesis liver function, and patients with lesser degrees of ascites and better liver function respond better to treatment and survive longer.

They found that bulging and dullness in the flanks and shifting dullness were most sensitive but of limited specifity, that a fluid thrill was specific but of limited sensitivity, and that the puddle sign in their hands was of very limited value.

Paracentesis Abdominal

Renal sodium retention is marked in ascites caused by hepatic cirrhosis aboveparticularly when the ascites is severe and hepatic dysfunction marked, and accordingly restriction of sodium intake is important, particulary in initial treatment. Chronic parenchymal liver disease is the most cornmon cause of ascites, and Table 6 shows paracenetsis main conditions from which it needs to be differentiated. The most effective treatment is a third- generation cephalosporin such as cefotaxime 1g intravenously 8 hourly.

The Puddle Sing-and aid in the diagnosis of minimal ascites. Accordingly, patients with refractory ascites showing normal values of these three variables were suggested to be the optimal candidates to be treated with TIPS.

Diastolic dysfunction is frequently detected in this setting and complicaaciones structural changes are being characterized.

However, these patients usually have very poor liverfunction and the possibility of fiver transplantation should be considered.

A total leucocyte count is not helpful as it is the short-lived polymorph cells which reflect infection. Recently, covered stents has reduced the complications caused by failure of the stent patency.


Increased susceptibility to infection of the ascitic fluid is reflected in low ascites protein concentrations which includes low ascites concentrations of opsonic factors such as immunoglobulins,complement, and fibronectin. Simulated training program in abdominal paracentesis for Spontaneous bacterial empyema in cirrhotic patients: Hepatology 3, This revision was aimed to report the evidences on the treatment of patients with cirrhosis and refractory ascites.

Infection is a very serious complication of ascites spontaneous bacterial peritonitis and carries a generally poor prognosis.

[Paracentesis as abdominal decompression therapy in neuroblastoma MS with massive hepatomegaly].

About a half of patients with tense ascites who do paracenhesis have gastrointestinal bleeding, infection, encephalopathy, severe renal failure or hepatocellular carcinoma at presentation die within a year, and poor prognostic factors in these patients are shown in Table 7.

However surgical portal systemic shunts are not compljcaciones for treating ascites as patients with intractable ascites generally have poor liver function and are poor candidates for such major surgical procedures. Enoxaparin prevents portal vein thrombosis and liver decompensation in patients with advanced cirrhosis.

Comparison of ascitic fibrinectin, cholesterol and serum-ascites albumin difference.

Paracentesis, however, is not without complications, and it is particularly important to give colloid replacement to complicaclones hypovolaemia which can lead to renal failure. Thus, the comparison between TIPS and LVP should be re-evaluated in the light of the stable hemodynamic effects achieved by the covered stents. Hepatology 4,b. Complicacions diuresis can cause hypovolaemia and renal failure, and accordingly daily fluid losses shoulcl be limited to ml.

Patients who are clinically well can be treated with broadspectrum quinolones such as ciprofloxacin.

They were, however, also effective in preventing ascites and consequentially spontaneus bacterial peritonitis.

Mild to moderate ascites can be treated paracenesis an outpatient, but more severe ascites is treated best in hospital as these patients usually have more severe liver damage and they more often have adverse reactions to therapy. Further investigation may be required to determine the cause of the ascites. In view of its prognostic implications, the development of ascites should always lead to consideration of liver transplantation. Nevertheless, the risk of hepatic encephalopathy is still high and constitutes one of the most important limit to a larger use of TIPS.


Hepatology 12, In most patients with cirrhosis and ascites a low sodium diet combined with diuretic medications obtains the disappearance of ascites.

[Paracentesis as abdominal decompression therapy in neuroblastoma MS with massive hepatomegaly].

The supra-additive natriuretic effect additional of quinethazone or bendrofflumethiazide during long-term treatment with furosemide and spironolactone. These patients should be regarded as having SBP and although asymptornatic patients may clear the ascitic infection spontaneously, it is probably safer to treat them with antibiotics.

Notwithstanding, all these advantages should be weighted with the consistent higher risk of encephalopathy. Se paracentess a navegar, consideramos que aceita complicadiones seu uso. In short, TIPSS can improve refractory ascites but the mortality is not improved and may even be increased, especially in Child C patients where liver function is very poor.

Before diagnosing refractory ascites it is important to exclude unrecognised inappropriate sodium intake, failure to take diuretic drugs concomitant drug therapy causing sodium retention above and ascites due to causes other than cirrhosis Table 6 even in complicaciohes patient with cirrhosis. J Hepatol, 54pp. A further important effect of TIPS is the increase of central blood volume with potential improvement of renal function.

Key words cirrhotic cardiomyopathy, ascites, hyperdynamic circulation. Diuresis starts within an hour within minutes of an intravenous dose and lasts for about six hours after an oral paracdntesis.

A chest radiograph is needed to exclude underlying conditions, such as pneumonia, and pleural fluid, ascites and blood shoulcl be cultured.
